Firstcard was founded to empower students.

Students are in school to prepare themselves for the future, and we think their banking platform should help them do the same. With Firstcard, students save more and stress less. Because seriously, the world is challenging enough as it is.

We’re raising the bar for student banking.

We think it’s high time the banking world paid attention to what students really want. With no annual fees, worry-free data protection, and instant cashback at all your favorite campus businesses, Firstcard's setting a new bar for student banking.

From bagel shops to boba houses, small businesses are the heartbeat of college campuses—and we aim to keep it that way. Our hyper-local cashback rewards network helps students and businessowners alike by keeping things local, just like they oughta be.


College students are smart. So why shouldn’t they have a say in their own banking experience? We’ve built our team to include student voices, because no one knows what students want more than students themselves.
